RIM has a current Value of $189.37 per share. Therefore, it is undervalued compared to its Price of $109.40 per share. Value is computed from forecasted earnings per share, forecasted earnings growth, profitability, interest, and inflation rates. Value increases when earnings, earnings growth rate and profitability increase, and when interest and inflation rates decrease. VectorVest advocates the purchase of undervalued stocks. At some point in time, a stock's Price and Value always will converge.
RV (Relative Value): RV is an indicator of long-term price appreciation potential. RIM has an RV of 1.58, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. This indicator is far superior to a simple comparison of Price and Value because it is computed from an analysis of projected price appreciation three years out, Scotia Capital Incorporated Corporate Long Term Bonds, and risk. RV solves the riddle of whether it is preferable to buy High growth, High P/E stocks, or Low growth, Low P/E stocks. VectorVest favors the purchase of stocks with RV ratings above 1.00.
RS (Relative Safety): RS is an indicator of risk. RIM has an RS rating of 1.53, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. RS is computed from an analysis of the consistency and predictability of a company's financial performance, debt to equity ratio, sales volume, business longevity, price volatility and other factors. A stock with an RS rating greater than 1.00 is safer and more predictable than the average stock in the VectorVest database. VectorVest favors the purchase of stocks of companies with consistent, predictable financial performance.
RT (Relative Timing): RT is a fast, smart, accurate indicator of a stock's price trend. RIM has a Relative Timing rating of 1.28, which is very good on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. RT is computed from an analysis of the direction, magnitude, and dynamics of a stock's price movements over one day, one week, one quarter and one year time periods. Once a stock's price has established a strong trend, it is expected to continue in that trend for the short-term. If a trend dissipates, RT will gravitate toward 1.00. RT will explode from bottoms, dive from tops, and reflect changes in price momentum. VectorVest favors the purchase of stocks with RT ratings above 1.00.
VST (VST-Vector): VST is the master indicator for ranking every stock in the VectorVest database. RIM has a VST rating of 1.46, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. VST is computed from the square root of a weighted sum of the squares of RV, RS, and RT. Stocks with the highest VST ratings have the best combinations of Value, Safety and Timing. These are the stocks to own for above average, long-term capital appreciation. VectorVest advocates the purchase of safe, undervalued stocks rising in price.
Recommendation (REC): VectorVest gives a Buy, Sell, Hold recommendation on every stock, every day. RIM has a Buy recommendation. REC reflects the cumulative effect of all the VectorVest parameters working together. These parameters are designed to help investors buy safe, undervalued stocks rising in price. They also help investors avoid or sell risky, overvalued stocks falling in price. VectorVest recommends that investors buy high VST-Vector, Buy-rated stocks in rising markets.
Stop (Stop-Price): Stop is an indicator of when to sell a long position or cover a short position. RIM has a Stop of $99.91 per share. This is $9.49 below RIM's current closing Price. A stock's Stop is computed from a 13 week moving average of its closing prices, and is fine-tuned according to the stock's fundamentals.
GRT (Earnings Growth Rate): GRT reflects a company's one to three year forecasted earnings growth rate in percent per year. RIM has a forecasted Earnings Growth Rate of 22.00%, which VectorVest considers to be excellent.

Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: The Fab Four of Tech

There are four new "horsemen of tech" that investors can bank on to drive this market, Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Wednesday.
However, before naming these four stocks, he first called out the four "retired horsemen of tech." Intel (INTC) , Dell (DELL) , Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) have all fallen from their former days of glory, Cramer said.
In 1999 and 2000, Cramer said he nicknamed the four companies "horsemen" because people felt secure with these four stocks. They made the market come alive with pleasure," Cramer said. "Even kryptonite couldn't hurt them."
The companies that defined an era have since stumbled badly, he said. Intel is down 71% from its high in 2000, Dell is down 54% from its high in 1999, Microsoft is down 49% from its high at the end of 1999 and Cisco is down 67% from its high in 2000. These stocks now "have been exiled on Wall Street," Cramer said........
